| This volume represents the proceedings of the conference on Groups, Rings and Group Rings, held July 28-August 2, 2008, in Ubatuba, Brazil. Papers in this volume contain results in active research areas in the theory of groups, group rings and algebras (including noncommutative rings), polynomial identities, Lie algebras and superalgebras. In particular, topics such as growth functions on varieties, groups of units in group rings, representation theory of Lie algebras, Jordan, alternative and Leibniz algebras, graded identities, automorphisms of trees, and partial actions, are discussed. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in ring theory. |
